    what cable would i need to plug into the telephone socket on the back of a sky hd box?

    Basically my sky box has moved and now the cable the sky engineer installed doesnt reach. hes wired the phone line into a box with another cable coming out of that is smaller than a telephone cable

    any ideas where i can get an extention for this?

    I tried it with a normal telephone cable as i was going to change the wireing from the wall but thats not possible


    Cheers

    that looks like the one, cheers

    Don't forget unless you have multiroom you don't really need to have it plugged in permanently. My sky box is on the opposite corner of the house to the incoming telephone supply so I just have a giant extension lead I run across the house and plug it in on the very odd occasion it is needed.

    Which socket, RJ9 or RJ11 ?

    You may well still get a charge from Sky, you are in breach of your contract with them.

    If they try to call the box and they can't they will warn you, if it happen 3 times they will charge you.
